The versatility of encaustic invites the use of mixed media materials and methods, while the natural luminosity and transparency of the paint allows for complex multi-layered work that speaks of time and memory. Going beyond simple collage in wax, this workshop is designed to assist you in creating intricate and personally significant paintings, where mixed media choices as material and application become intuitive. This workshop explores the myriad methods that can be used to create complexity, add interest and texture, and design with mystery and drama. Correct use and mixing of media with wax, along with tips and suggestions for display and shipping, will be discussed. The workshop is co-sponsored by R&F Paints.

Expressive, emotive, and easy-watercolor monotypes are unique prints created by transferring images produced on a plastic surface to paper. Paper created for monotype may also be used for watercolor paper. Learn to make paper then learn how to use watercolors to create painterly surfaces that cannot be obtained by working directly on paper. Includes materials; bring a sketchbook and reference images to work from. Some drawing experience is helpful; however, no printmaking experience is required.
